In This Issue:

Changes Come To the Website!

New Potty Time Resource Review

What’s New? Search It, Find It, Plan It!


A NEW Look is Coming to the Website!

You may have noticed that many of the pages on the website are being updated! My goal is to make the font and colors easier to read!

In addition, this summer the website will be getting a new look!

The format I have now does not allow for the updates needed to keep us all current, so a new format and look will be coming.

The picture at the top of the website will be different once the new look rolls out this summer. I'll keep you posted!

Themes now available for your E-Readers!

Many themes have been added as e-books for purchase, most of them priced at .99 (USD) each!

You can find the list of E-Books here! There is a small fee for each theme to help offset the time it takes to format and publish them. I will be formatting and publishing the remaining themes throughout the year so that they are all available by the end of the year.

Until Next Time,
